Decorex international interiors trade show is a hotly anticipated staple in the interior design communities calendar.
This 4 day event brings the best of interior design to Olympia London, and it’s one not to miss.
So, we headed down at the start of the show to see what new products are coming to market, along with colour, interior and furniture trends for 2024 that we expect to see in our interiors a lot over the coming year.
Here’s the lowdown on everything cool we spotted at Decorex this year.
Everything Cool We Spotted At Decorex International Interiors Show
Bert & May was an amazing find during Decorex. A huge part of their business is reclaimed tiles, where they regularly travel to Spain to source beautiful antique tiles.
Reclaimed tiles are not easy to come across, and if you wish to breathe period authenticity back into a period property, it can be difficult with replica tiles.
There’s something about reclaimed tiles that gets me a bit excited, they bring such a unique angle to a home.
Sweet Treats Capsule Collection
Getting a first look at paint trends was high on the agenda for our trip to Decorex, and there was a resounding collective of where colour is headed in 2024, lots of rich, indulgent and decadent colours.
Little Greene trumped it with their incredible stand that looked like a bakery to their new Sweet Treats capsule collection of paint colours.
This collection features a range of warm modern neutral shades of honey, caramel and chocolate, inspired by delicious desserts. I mean, what’s not to love?
We have a lot of love for this collection, and can’t wait some of the shades in an upcoming project.Shop Sweet Treats
The Linen Collection – The Soho Lighting Company
The Soho Lighting Company is a huge favourite of mine.
Last year they launched their pioneering Ocean Collection which was derived from recycled fishing nets and plastics, then lovingly 3D printed in the heart of Cornwall.
This year they have expanded their range with the beautiful launch of their Linen collection, inspired by the subtle folds of draped cloth.
This elegant collection has been consciously created too, beautiful aesthetics with a conscience. Prices start from £200.00.Shop The Collection
Holmes Bespoke x Naturalmat Large Scale Hanging Tapestries
We caught up with the lovely Holmes Bespoke team at Decorex and got to preview their exciting and first of its kind large scale hanging tapestries, designed to stand alone as a statement piece or used as a textured backdrop to a Naturalmat bed base.
A small headboard can feel unfinished and inferior in a large room, and this bridges that gap between furniture and art, adding extra texture, colour and visual interest to a room.

Peelable Easy Peel Testers
Coat Paints is leading the way with paint testers, and their clever peelable paint testers revolutionise the way we test paints.
Light changes in a room, and being able to move and reposition a tester throughout the space gives a much better indication on how colour looks in a room.
Coat paints are leaning towards those warmer, modern neutrals too, and I was particularly taken by Baked, the most perfect terracotta paint shade.
The Cocktail Collection
The show was not short of stunning interior hardware, and the Cocktail Collection by Armac Martin particularly caught our eye.
This stunning collection is inspired by cocktails with a contemporary twist, it reimagines sophisticated glassware silhouettes and details to form a trio of indulgent design stories.
They carry a slight art deco feel with them, perfect for making a solid, quality statement in an interior.Explore The Collection
Pleated Lamp Shades
An interior without colour is one without personality, and if you find paint too daring in a space, these colourful pleated lampshades from Ian Sanderson are a perfect way to tastefully experiment with a pop of colour.
Available in 27 different colours and differing sizes, these were attracting a lot of attention at the show.
Those rusty, terracotta tones really were a running theme at the show.
From paint trends to innovative furniture and stunning interior hardware, there was much inspiration to take away from Decorex and some strong precursors of what is to come in-store for our interiors as we head into 2024.
